This is the headstock inlay on a custom DC-15

The faceplate is Brazillian Rosewood, binding is Flamed Koa.
The purfling is Maple, Green Abalone, Maple. Logo is Green Abalone.

The roses are etched Mother of Pearl, the leaves and stems Green Abalone.

Finish is heat resistant Pale French Polish.

The coloring is acheived by laying 4 to 6 coats of French Polish on,
painting the roses and stems with the appropriate analine dyes, then 4 to 6 more coats of French Polish.

It's quite a nice effect.
